EVA Air has unveiled a new-generation business cabin named Royal Laurel Class. The airline has invested US$100million in upgrading its top cabins on all of its Boeing 777-300ERs with new, fully lie-flat seats and inaugurated the new service on a Taipei–New York flight earlier this month.
The carrier has configured its Royal Laurel Class cabins with 38 seats in a reverse herringbone layout that enables passengers at windows to look out without turning and those in the center to easily dine and talk with travel companions. Seats are approximately 26-inches wide, recline 180 degrees and stretch out almost 79-inches. Each passenger environment includes features such as a coat hook, space for shoe stowage, handy nooks for water, glasses and reading material and a seat-side table for beverages, snacks or writing materials, all within easy reach.
In addition, the airline is outfitting the Royal Laurel Class seating environments with the latest audio and video technologies, starting with 15.4-inch touch screens and high-fidelity noise-cancelling headphones. Passengers with personal electronic devices can work or relax using multi-function AV-input outlets, USB and iPod ports on a system equipped with software such as media player, photo viewer and PDF reader.
The carrier's Royal Laurel Class service will operate non-stop between Taipei and New York on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays and the airline also offers a fourth flight on the route on Wednesdays. From June 18, a fifth weekly New York flight will be added and by the end of August, the Royal Laurel Class will be offered on all of New York flights. The airline will introduce the new cabin on its Los Angeles service by the end of this year and begin to roll it out on San Francisco, Toronto, Paris, Amsterdam and London flights in 2013.
